SFO Record Exhibit Makes Terminal Two Even Cooler (PHOTOS)

Terminal Two, you are too cool.

First it was a $383 million renovation designed to recapture the golden age of air travel. Then it was a food court with local purveyors like Cowgirl Creamery, Acme Bread and Tyler Florence. And now, instead of hoarding gossip magazines and overpriced bestsellers, waiting passengers can kill time checking out "Revolutions per Minute: The Evolution of the Record" and "The Art of the Album Cover," the sweet new music exhibits lining the halls at SFO.

Until March, Terminal Two is displaying a stellar collection of preserved phonographs and record players from the 19th and 20th centuries, picture discs, colored vinyl and vintage album covers from artists like Billie Holiday, New Order, Elvis Presley and Grand Master Flash.

Just in time for the inevitable holiday delays.

Check out some of the highlights from SFO's "Revolutions per Minute: The Evolution of the Record" and "The Art of the Album Cover" exhibits in the slideshow below, courtesy of SFO Museum:
